I really like some of their beers but I was overall disappointed in their beer. The place is nice and kid friendly.

Another excellent beer experience. Couldn't imagine a visit could be nothing but the best! Bartender is very fast with a smile!

I was so looking forward to this stop on the Bellingham Tap Trail. I had already enjoyed the Kulshan Red Cape Red Ale at a local brew fest and was looking for another. The server curtly told me they were sold out. There is no food at the brew house so be sure to bring your own if you plan... More

Very good beer neighborhood setting. Both indoor and outdoor seating. No food inside brewery but different food truck daily outside. Really like the porter beer smells like coffee.

On our way back to Seattle after a brewery tour in Vancouver, we were looking for a nice stop for an American made beer. On a Thursday night, this place was packed. Great selection and a food truck outside.

Very friendly atmosphere. Family friendly outside the bar proper. Dog friendly outside. Food truck or two if you want a meal. There are also local restaurants within walking distance. And the beer is very good.

Kulshan is a newer brewery to Bellingham and I think it far exceeds the competition. Can sit inside or outside, tiny area to dance, and great folks. Some of the cutest hoodies I have seen at a brewery too. There is a little food truck next door too. And the IPA is awesome! Must stop on a brew tour of... More
